Bug : Column mode edition Alt+C



  • COlumn Edition (ALT +C)
    shows a pop up menu, where you can “insert text” in colomn.

    I’m using this fonction to update phone number list with prefix, and adding some '2 and ', to prepare SQL queries…

    like this:

    ‘2XXXXXXXX591’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX900’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX898’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX589’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX895’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX893’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX888’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX858’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX883’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX882’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX878’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX877’,

    But when I’m doing this on more than 1000 lines,
    I have some issues:

    some lines are randomed and I get such results:

    ‘2XXXXXXXX591’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX900’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX898’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX589’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX895’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX893’, X888 ‘,
    ‘2XXXX’,
    ‘2XX’ XXXXXX883’,2
    ‘2XXXXXXXX882’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX878’,
    ‘2XXXXXXXX877’,

    I’m regularly updating notepad, really need thisto be fixed, issue is there since long.

    thank you

    I tried it on similar data with 2000 lines with no problem.

    Can you post your complete BEFORE and AFTER text (maybe on textuploader.com) that this problem happens with? [Make sure the problem happens with the XXX’s rather than just the real phone numbers…I’m sure you don’t want to post the real phone numbers…]

    Also try to describe exactly what you do: where is your caret before you start?, etc. Sometimes there is more to what you are doing than you say, and that can be the thing(s) that reveal a bug…

    Also, what version of Notepad++, including whether or not it is a 32 or 64 bit version.
